A Roasted Pork Tenderloin is the perfect meat dish for a holiday table.

It’s fast and easy compared to other options (like a turkey, for example) and is simple and delicious.

Also, did you know that the tenderloin is the leanest cut of pork?

Here, we dress it up with a simple Dijon and garlic rub everyone in your family will love.

Easy Roasted Pork Tenderloin
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Season the pork with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Mix the mustard and garlic together and rub all over the tenderloin.
  3. Heat a large nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the pork and sear until all sides are brown, turning occasionally, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast until cooked through, about 15 minutes.
  6. Let the pork rest for 10 minutes.


A serving of pork contains 50 percent of the daily iron your body needs in an easily-absorbed form. Served at a special dinner alongside roasted root vegetables, mashed sweet potatoes, and other delicious sides, it’s a total winner.
